Full description
Meet your local host at your hotel or a convenient meeting point to be decided. Then begin your personalized adventure of one of Hong Kong's most vibrant neighborhoods. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Although you will see well-known streets and markets, your local host will also help you to discover the places, things, and stories that you won't find in a guidebook and that make the city unique. Begin the tour by getting a little lost, exploring the tiny shops and market stalls in little side streets and back alleys, as well as the most famous night markets in Mong Kok. Take the opportunity to shop for souvenirs and treasures to take home or just soak up the atmosphere. Then, head to Dundas Street and explore the gaai, or back alleys, where you'll find tiny bars selling drinks ranging from herbal medicines to beers. Eat your way around a traditional night markets where vendors sell all the classics like steamed crab, cheung fun (chewy rice noodles), siu mai (a street version of a steamed dim sum classic), and fried octopus tentacles. This is where you’ll find some of the best food in the city, all at a local price. Get some tips and tricks where you can continue the night as this is one of the best districts in the city to party. Your host will share local secrets with you, like where the locals go at 5 AM to eat fried squid balls after a night of partying, and where the best underground clubs are.
